A guide to metagenomic sequencing with Oxford Nanopore
1st April 2020
Metagenomics can be defined as the analysis of the community of genomes present within an isolated sample and is a term predominantly applied to the detection and analysis of microorganisms.
This guide provides the following information:
- Benefits of nanopore sequencing for metagenomics research
- Comparison between 16S rRNA and whole-genome sequencing for species identification and characterisation
- How to choose the right library preparation kit(s) for your experiment
- Sample-to-answer workflow: from DNA extraction (including recommendations on host depletion), to sequencing platform recommendations, and analysis solutions
- Case studies on metagenomics research using nanopore sequencing technology
